Thomas Jefferson to George Jefferson, 4 April 1811

To George Jefferson

Monticello Apr. 4. 11

Dear Sir

I presume you have recieved the sum of 1333 D from mr Samuel J. Harrison which he assured me should be punctually paid on the 1st inst. at your counting house. this makes no part of the purchase of my tobacco crop, which is not yet due, & is destined to meet the following demands

Washington. John Barnes  360.D
Richard Barry  100.D. under cover to mr Barnes
Baltimore. John Hollins esq.  86.D.
Philadelphia.   Jones & Howell  349.35 Ironmongers
Richmond Gordon & Trokes  235.42 with interest
Jos. Darmsdatt  75.
1205.77

I have accordingly given notice by letter to these several persons that you will be so good as to make them the remittances & paiments immediately. I am in hopes my Bedford flour is beginning to arrive with you by this time. there should be 280. barrels of it. that from hence & the tobo here will go as fast as Johnson’s two boats can carry it. these will be the subjects of future explanations

ever affectionately yours

Th: Jefferson
